Extension stopped working in Firefox

Yesterday the extension button in the top right corner of browser window turned grey and I can't use the extension anymore. The shortcut to fill my logins in the browser also stopped working (to be expected since it is tied to the plugin).

I tried redownloading the plugin but it seems like a new version of it was introduced and it is asking me to login. However I use standalone version of 1Password and syncing it with my Dropbox. I do not have an account on 1Password.com. How can I restore the functionality of the plugin back where it was?

Thank you.

1Password Version: Not Provided
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Windows 10
Sync Type: Dropbox

    Hi @Someone1231!

    Can you please download the classic extension and see if that works for you?

    Get the 1Password classic extension

    The classic extension does not require a 1Password Membership and a Secret Key to be used, so I think that's the one you were using before ;)

  • Okay, I have done that, but for whatever reason, the extension does not show up in the right top corner (even though I see it in Add-ons Manager when I look at what extensions I have installed).
    Any clue what might be wrong?

    Make sure to add the 1Password extension to your toolbar as well:

    If you don’t see the 1Password icon in your browser’s toolbar

    I see that you have quite a few extensions installed already, so I wonder if your browser is hiding some of them to save space.

  • Okay, so that got me where I was when I started. Indeed Firefox was hiding the icon, however when I put it back into the toolbar, it is grey once again, and unclickable. 1Password still does not work in the browser.

  • Alright, so far, I was told to try this:

    Thanks for sending that over. Let’s tackle the issue that you're seeing in Firefox by first completely quitting 1Password and your browser. While this is a simple step, it can help resolve many problems.

    Quit 1Password completely:
        Open 1Password.
        Hold down the Control and Option keys on your keyboard and choose 1Password > Quit 1Password Completely from the menu bar.
    Quit your Firefox browser:
        Open your browser.
        Click the name of your browser in the menu bar and choose Quit.
    Restart your computer.
    Open and unlock 1Password.
    Open your browser and test out 1Password to see if the issue is resolved.

    Please let me know how that goes! I'll talk to you again soon.

    Wish it was that simple, but nothing has changed. I am still in touch with the support, so we will see if we figure it out.

    Thank you!

    You just solved my problem, so I will copy the solution here:

    Open 1Password and choose 1Password > Exit.
    Press Windows logo key + R.
    Enter the following command and press Enter:

    1password.exe setup

    After this, open Firefox, and give things another try. Let us know what you find. :)

    Easy enough! Thank you very much!
